3 weeks. 5 cities. 15 impossible stunts. One reality show.
Trevor Cross came into Reya Cabrera’s world with a bang and faded out with a whimper. They vowed to make it work, but life had other plans. After chasing his TV dreams for years, Trev finally became the UK’s next big reality star, but he alienated his family and friends in the process. Now he finally has everything he ever wanted. Women. Money. Fame. But none of it means anything when he doesn’t have the one thing that matters most: love.
Money leaves a gaping hole. Fame surrounds him with loneliness. And no woman makes him feel like Reya used to before the whirlwind of success pulled them apart.
He has a plan to get her back. However, with a hectic filming schedule looming, the only way to do that is to convince her to come on the road with him. Reya has been stuck in a rut for a while, and the opportunity to travel across Europe and play her music for new audiences seems like heaven. The only catch? She has to do it with the one boy who ever got close enough to break her heart. But he’s not a boy anymore, and as she gets to know him again she can’t deny her respect for the man he’s become.
Every time she’s around him her heart feels full of air, like a balloon about to pop. Little does she know, Trev’s feelings are just as tumultuous as hers. One thing’s for sure, these three weeks on the road together will either make them whole again or break them irrevocably.

Book Review: 4 Stars
With her “Hearts”-Series, L. H. Cosway created an adorable bunch of brothers. The Cross brothers are all amazing characters, as are the women who won their hearts. Cosway’s writing and her gift of creating tenderness in the most casual of situations makes her books something special every time.
In “Hearts on Air”, the sporty brother of the bunch, Trev Cross, finally gets a chance to show the world his enormous talent of Parcour (freestyle-climbing and jumping from high buildings, walls, bridges etc.). He and his co-stars have their own TV-Show and he is at a point in his life, where he finally feels like he can be himself. The only thing he regrets is the way he treated his best friend Reya, right before he started his fame and fortune. But Trev wouldn’t be a Cross if he would let something get in his way of getting his girl back…
Like mentioned above, L.H. Cosway’s writing is so beautiful! In this story, the characters get to travel through quite a couple of European metropoles and we get the feeling as if we’re right beside them, all thanks to the vivid writing. The characters were amazing, too – although I would have wished for Reya to have a bit more backbone and a little less attitude. The best was, that “Heart on Air” was a cross-over into earlier novels by Cosway and we get to see a lot of characters again, which may or may not have stolen our hearts earlier. Although “Hearts on Air” would be suitable for a standalone, since each and every character was explained, I wouldn’t recommend it. To read the former books is not only making the understanding of certain characters and situations easier, it’s also a shame if you don’t read those books. They are all awesome and beautiful tales of love, life and family.
The only real issue I personally had with “Hearts on Air” was the pace of the story. The beginning was angst galore – but then the story dragged for me. Whereas the author was able to create vivid images with her words, she also sometimes used too many for too little. I.e. some parts were too detailed with trivial stuff and I got a bit impatient sometime in the middle of the book, wanted to push the characters together to finally get some action into it. But this was probably only my personal preference that I would have wished for the author to keep the angst up a bit more or to throw a little twist into the mix.
Otherwise, “Hearts on Air” was as beautiful a story as I had wished for and I can only congratulate L.H. Cosway to her creation of so many beautiful characters and their lives. Overall, my rating changed from 5 stars at the beginning to 3 sometime in the middle, to 4 at the ending, so I ended up with 4 stars for this book and a definite recommendation. All of the author’s books are must-reads!
Now, I don’t know if my memory is just as bad as always and I may be confusing something or maybe it’s true, but I really don’t hope “Hearts on Air” is the last book in this series. I’d really love to see more of the youngest brother, Liam Cross, and his girlfriend and maybe to see the “Hearts”-Family grow with time. Pretty please with a cherry on top, Miss Cosway!
